Wait for You (Wait for You, #1)

Wait for You  -  Jennifer L. Armentrout, J. Lynn I devoured this book and I would happily devour Cam as well.He was gorgeous in all the ways that made girls do stupid things. he was tall, a good head or two taller than me and broad at the shoulders, but tapered at the waist. An athlete's body-like a swimmer's. Wavy black hair toppled over his forehead, brushing matching eyebrows. Broad cheekbones and wide, expressive lips completed the package created for girls to drool over. and with those sapphire-colored eyes, holy moley...Holy moley is right and boy did I ever drool over Cam. I thought it fitting that this review start with him. He is not just eye candy though, he is sweet, caring and a bit arrogant. While I have swooned over many a fictional character, nothing compares to Cam. I am not sure what I could say that would actualy do this book justice but I will give it a go.Avery is an awkward girl who has had some stuff happen to her in her past that she had decided she needs to run from. She leaves her parents home in Texas and decides to go to college in West Virginia. It is here that she meets Cam. They run into each other on the first day of classes, literally. It doesn't stopped there, they continue to run into each other. You can just tell that there is this attraction between them. Avery doesn't make it easy on the poor guy. She turns him down left and right. I was kind of surprised he kept asking. Cam also has a past that he is not proud of. They also have this great banter that left me laughing.Biting down on my lip, I sat a few feet away from him and then busied myself with finding my Astronomy notebook. As I pulled it out, I glanced over at him and our eyes locked. I couldn't look away. Intense. that was the first word that came to mind. His stare was intense, like he was seeing right through me.There are some very deep emotional issues that Avery has to work through before she can truly be with Cam. It was hard to see her go through this. The worst part is that she didn't even have a support system in her parents, they sold her out. She doesn't feel like she can open up and talk to anyone about what happened to her. I couldn't ever imagine being in her position For everything that she has been through she is so strong. Her mother is absolute bitch with a capital B! I did find myself upset with Avery at times, I wanted her to open up to Cam so bad. But I understood why she couldn'tI started to laugh, but it got stuck in my throat. Coming home was in my best interest? The woman was crazy. Just talking to her made it feel like I got the crazy on me.Cam also has something in his past that he is not proud of. He is afraid to tell Avery, afraid that it will make her leave. These two need each other so bad and neither one of them realizes it. They were both frustrating and amazingly beautiful all at the same time.The characters really make this story. I loved Avery and her strength and social awkwardness I loved Cam and how protective he was of Avery. The fact that he is hot and swoon-worthy didn't hurt either. Jacob and Britt who befriend Avery are hilarious. I loved there friendship and how they were there for Avery. I have to say I even loved Raphael the turtle Yes, Cam has a turtle named Raphael (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). Raphael gives us some laugh out loud moments. Especially when we are introduced to Michelangelo.I cannot recommend this book enough. If you have not read it you really should. It is definitely for mature eyes only. You get everything with this story, romance, humor, steaminess, love and heartbreak. I cannot wait to read more stories like this from J. Lynn. She really knows how to write an amazing male lead character that you can't help but fall for. Hands off though Cam is mine. Happy reading.Everything was okay. Maybe not perfect, but life wasn't meant to be perfect. It was messy and sometimes it was a disaster, But there was beauty in the messiness and there could be peace in the disaster.
